    For what it's worth, AZDave and I both just recently independently tested a hunk of "material" that was claimed to be ~50% silver (Ag). Both his handheld XRF and the SEM-EDX results I got from work showed it to be nothing more than a large hunk of some type of solder and dirt.

    ~40% lead (Pb), ~40% Tin (Sn) and ~10% Antimony (Sb) with the rest being C and a bunch of trace elements - not a single sign of silver.

    John - I still have a small chunk of your mica containing rock about the size of a nickel. PM me your address and I'll ship it back to you so I can be done and I don't have to see my name keep popping up as being a liar and thief. The other small chunk (the size of a quarter) that you gave me got tossed into the garbage when you told me you didn't want them back. I thought the other one had been thrown out too, but after seeing my name here I got to looking and it never made it into the garbage bin. If you don't want it back, say so and I'll throw it away when I get home - after that, find someone else who's willing to take time out of their day to help you out.

    Paul

    By the way, here's one of the 30 SEM-EDX scans my coworker did for me on the "Ag" containing chunk.

    I'm going to call out trolling every time I see it. It is disrupting the ability of posters to have meaningful discussion in this forum. It is just as bad as personal attacks and causes posters to lose interest.

    TH - I didn't see anything JW posted after my last admittedly "snarky" post. I shouldn't have added to the antagonism so I apologize for my part, but thanks for helping moderate this and keeping it civil.

    Deducer, you do not set rules here, I have also already said rules are not open for debate. If you continue to call members trolls you will find you can't post at all, your choice. If you have trouble with a post a member has posted report it to mods and we will look at it and if it violates our rules we will handle it.

    "Per our rules.

    "Help keep the atmosphere at TreasureNet fun! Sniping, name calling, denigration and other generally negative or abusive actions are grounds for moderation. In extreme cases grounds for banning!"

    "Keep the discussion civil, respectful and on topic."

    "Don't attack, provoke, insult, or deliberately offend anyone."

    He just moved on to the Tayopa board, where he continued his insulting commentary towards you and your efforts to help him.
    So, following the mod's advice, I've reported the post.

    Nor is it about platinum deposits in Durango or paragon diamonds in Nevada....or even a member who keeps suggesting that he will sell his knowledge for the sum of $20,000,000.
    Is it ?

    Since he refused to heed mod warning to stop attacking member's character he has now lost the right to post at all for awhile.
